Guns N’ Roses will play Coachella – but what about Los Angeles?



Guns N’ Roses will play Los Angeles in mid-August

A date in Los Angeles for the much-anticipated Guns N’ Roses tour has finally been announced, and the group will perform with its “classic line-up” at Dodger Stadium on August 18.

Earlier this month we had predicted they’d announce their LA stop at the end of their string of performances at Coachella, and guessed they’d play open dates at the Rose Bowl, or the Forum. Well, at least we were partially right.

Based on performances thus far, Angelinos are in for something special when the band heads west.

Guns N’ Roses kicked off their tour featuring lead singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena on April 8, with Rose sporting a cast after breaking bones in his foot. Despite his injury, Rolling Stone praised the band’s performance, even adding that Rose’s immobility added to his intensity onstage.

Rose, Slash and McKagan haven’t played together since 1993, and they will be accompanied by guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist and percussionist Dizzy Reed and keyboardist Melissa Reese.

While it seems easy to celebrate the reunion now, the Los Angeles Times points out that getting the main members back together was a Herculean effort on the part of Paul Tollett, who launched Coachella in 1999. He has a history as a promoter with the band, going back to their heyday in the 1980s.

Tollett told the Times he approached the band about playing together again two years ago, even going to the extent of sending them a vintage 1986 flyer from a show they did, right before becoming famous.

“I never pushed hard, but put it out there,” Tollett told the Times. “It just started picking up steam.”

The enthusiastic crowd at Coachella and, come August, fans in Los Angeles surely appreciate his painstaking efforts. Read more ›

Shen Yun Is A Must See!

shen yun

Shen Yun is a breathtaking visual into Chinese culture through music and dance. The show begins with your hosts for the evening presenting the story behind each performance in both English and Chinese. At the start of the show, the dance “Salvation and Renewal” transports you into the heavens where angelic hosts are seen leaving the heavenly realm and coming to earth. From there Shen Yun presents stories of mystical beings, ancient legends and current day political tensions in China.

Highlights of the evening include the Chinese dance story “Monkey King and the Dragon Palace”, “Fairies of the Sea” and “The Mystical Udumbara”.

The “Monkey King and the Dragon Palace” is a story inspired by the classic novel Journey into the West. The story tells of the Monkey King, ruler of all the monkeys, born from a rock with mystical powers. While searching for the perfect weapon, The Monkey King meets the Dragon King in his undersea palace where challenges and battles ensue as he struggles to return to the surface with his weapon in hand.

An ancient Chinese legend “Fairies of the Sea” told through classical Chinese dance takes you to the surface of the sea where fairy maidens appear to the pure of heart.  This colorful and upbeat performance held the audience’s attention from the moment the curtain lifted.

In “The Mystical Udmubara”, we see the story of a flower that blossoms once every thousand years and brings the Holy King into the earthly realm.

Gwen Stefani and Eve reunite after 15 years to “Blow Ya Mind” this summer on tour

The early 2000s don’t get enough credit as an era in time that produced good music. One of the most fun duos from that period was the teaming up of No Doubt’s lead singer, Gwen Stefani, and the breakout female rapper, Eve.

If you loved the bad-girl vibe of the duo’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” or even Eve’s phenomenal solo single, “Who’s That Girl” you’re in luck, because Stefani announced they’ll be reuniting this summer on her “This is What the Truth Feels Like” tour, starting off at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts on July 12, and ending at the Forum in Los Angeles on October 15.

It will be the first time Stefani and Eve have made music together in 15 years.

E! Online called the ladies’ collaboration on “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” a “peak 2001” moment and we can see why. In an age where Rihanna’s NSFW video adventures include everything from kidnapping to cold-blooded murder, it’s easy to forget that in 2001 a couple of girls could get in trouble by just crashing a snobby party, where the height of their dastardly deeds involved swiping the mic from a prim rich woman and getting some stuffy people to take off their coats and dance.
